Dems Cowboys

My view of Denver is skewed from growing up in Nebraska and the fact that I twice lived there. I see it as a place where Neal Cassady was at home. Not as a cow town, by any stretch.
Yet this poster from Colorado designers Idaho Stew has stirred some to suggest the image reinforces an unwanted stereotype.
Unbutton your stuffed shirts, is my response to that. Even better, trade them in for shirts with pearl snaps.

About David Burn

I wrote my first ad for a political candidate when I was 17 years old. She won her race and I felt the seductive power of advertising for the first time. Today—after working for seven agencies in five states—I am head of brand strategy and creative at Bonehook in Portland, Oregon.
